The Reel Life: Knowing when to quit edition

2 May 2013

The Reel Life loves a carnival. And we love to play the games, even though we know they're impossible to win. But perhaps our love of the online slots has taught us an important lesson on when to quit.

Henry Gribbohm apparently hasn't learned that lesson. After dropping $300 trying to win an Xbox Kinect at a carnival in Manchester, N.H., Gribbohm went home and got the rest of his life savings ($2,300 more) and lost it all trying to beat a game called Tubs of Fun. While he didn't get the Xbox, he did manage to score a pretty sweet giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

Oh, and the price of a new Xbox Kinnect? About $300.

Turns out that there may be redemption for Gribbohm, however, as CollegeHumor.com is offering to buy the Rastafarian banana for $2,600 if a story the site posted about Gribbohm gets 26,000 Facebook "likes."

So congratulations to you, Henry Gribbohm. You didn't know when to quit the carnival game, but by promoting your story, you might end up with your money back … unless you want to keep the banana.

Get in the fast lane Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!
